A Pirate's Life For Me!

Today, Darwin and I got to tour The Black Pearl/Queen Anne's Revenge from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  The movie people had to work with the Coast Guard for some of the pyrotechnic/exploding stuff...so the captain of the boat invited the coastie families to tour the boat after the boat scenes were all filmed.  It was very cool...mostly surreal.  I met Darwin at his office and then drove over to the dock where it is moored up.  The captain was really friendly and let us wonder around wherever we wanted.  He even took Darwin down to the engine room and showed him the remote control he used to control the boat.  We didn't see any actors or movie people...but the boat was just awesome!  I, of course, took several pictures...hehe.  The kids were a little bummed out that they didn't get to go, but the tour was during school.
